Sheila ran 1 2/5 miles on Monday and 2 1/3 miles on Tuesday. What was the total distance, in miles, Sheila ran during those two days?

A.) 3 2/15

B.) 3 3/8

C.) 3 2/5

D.) 3 7/15

E.) 3 11/15

A.) 3 2/15

B.) 3 3/8

C.) 3 2/5

D.) 3 7/15

E.) 3 11/15

Add the two distances, 1 2/15 and 2 1/3, together to find the total distance.

1 2/15 + 2 1/3

= 1 2/15 + 2 5/15 {got common denominator of 15, by multiplying numerator and denominator of 1/3 by 5}

= 3 7/15 {added 1 and 2, and also combined the numerators over the common denominator}

**D.) 3 7/15**
